A Grapemo Friday 10

Listen carefully

Six more days of Grapemo left.

OK--all together now:

Thank you! :)

Where has the time gone? What do I have to show for it?

I'll tell you:

22 gallons of coffee single-handedly consumed.

85 pages of revisions completed.

A Photobucket library that's about to explode.

More blog posts in 3 weeks than I've posted in six months.

Some of the coolest teasers EVER! Who can resist these glimpses into the worlds of other writers?

A gaping hole in my jaw and an empty bottle of Motrin.

Under the table, a warm, furry head on my feet for the better part of the month.


A sense of accomplishment: Working on a project I've been postponing for ages even though there's something else I'd much rather be working on. It's called commitment--something I worry I often lack at times.


This is an early thank you to all you for sharing this month with me!

I've gotten so much more writing done than I normally do because of Grapemo. For that reason alone, I'll be sad when it's over. (Hopefully I can keep up the pattern I've had throughout it once it's over.) I'm really going to miss the teasers, too, though. I've grown so interested in so many WIP's as a result and there's just something lovely about seeing bravery in others that compels me to be braver too about sharing.

I'm really grateful to have been able to participate in this. Already, I can't wait for next year! :D Thank you so much for hosting this, Jeannine!

Thank you for participating! It's been so much fun.

Wish we'd had a month with less outside intrusions over here-- feel like I haven't done it justice. Still, I *have* gotten a lot more done than I would have otherwise... and this weekend will probably add to that!

I'm hoping to have a better weekend myself. :)

I am not looking forward to Grapemo being over. It's been SO good for me! Even though I haven't done so hot this week (killer allergies and an insane schedule for a couple of days), I've written more this month than I have in the past two years. My characters are talking to me again. I'm thinking about my book more. And it's more than a "sigh, I really should get back to that. It'd be nice to finish it someday." No, it's actual scene ideas and epiphanies and excitement to being moving forward and making progress. And it's been great to realize that even with my busy life, I can usually fit in 15 minutes. And often, it turns into half an hour or an hour and I feel great about the progress I made which only makes me want to write more the next day. I really hope I can keep this new routine after Grapemo is over. It's definitely my goal.

I hope you can, too. I know I'm going to try! I've been such a slacker lately.

I can't believe there's only six days left. This month went by so fast! I'm still determined to reach my goal, though, even though I feel so behind...

And wow, yay you for accomplishing so much already! 85 pages is such a great achievement, especially since there's another project trying to snag your attention!

It's the only thing that keeps me going, lol.

Good luck!

omg! where did it go? It has been terrific as always; I am so excited for the progress you have made...tooth hole and all!

Keep it up. Soon this one will be done and you and Nazikillerdoll can begin your dance. Looking forward to hearing lots more about that.

Love ya bunches
